Not a bad effort, Bala.
Very strong, intensive glare from the bird, with some good definition and detail in the feathers.
Good focus on the beak/eyes, and i like the fact the bird is active in as much as the wings are not tucked up making it look like it's about to get airborne, which it did a few seconds after you caught it on camera.
The fully automatic camera settings have slightly spoiled the shot I think, and the white balance is off which makes the shot artificially warm. Was this shot taken under canvas perhaps? There is a very strong colour cast which could have been compensated for by selecting a different white balance setting for indoor shots under any artificial lighting.
The colour cast is easily fixed though, and I've done a workshop showing the change, which i think enhances the image, bringing out a more natural colour of the bird's plumage.
All I did was adjust grey levels.
Nice subject though, and i've enjoyed staring at this one for a while now.

In deed, the stare seems mesmerizing and the pose is somewhat majestic, although I think it wouldn't hurt to enhance the eyes a bit in post.
Overall it's a well achieved and attractive image, with an excelent bokeh and clever composition.

Hello Bala, sharp focus on the head and chest; I like the way that the falcon is looking straight at you.
The workshop is interesting and complements your shot.
Tfs, regards Jean.
